THE UNDERTONES - "Teenage Kicks" EP (Sire 4007) October 1978 

"Teenage Kicks" is arguably the greatest teen punk number of the 1970s. Not many people on Earth, unless you're one of those urbane square types would fail to recognize the sheer power, adolescent frustration, two chord wonderment and anthemic joy of this greatness spinning on their turntable in 1978.

If The Undertones had bailed out after this release they would never have been forgotten. As it turned out they had numerous stirring numbers just bursting to be unleashed on the scene and soon became Chart regulars for years to come.
